Album Description:

Since the release of Megadeth''s 1985 debut, KILLING IS MY BUSINESS... AND BUSINESS IS GOOD!, once self-proclaimed, state-of-the-art speed-metal mongers have survived drug addiction, hair rock, grunge, a dead drummer, Dave Mustaine''s giant  ego problems, and alcoholism. And that''s just for starters. Furthermore, Mustaine, along with other founding member and bassist, Dave Ellefson has gone through bandmembers like a bad game of Russian roulette - only exacerbated by Mustaine''s deep insecurities and his consistent need to cling on to his dignity. Mustaine has often bellyached about his need to be respected  by his quote/unquote, more heralded, sometimes dismissive peers (many of who have fallen by the wayside). So then, isn''t that ironic the Megadeth name and moniker is still bigger than the band itself? Here''s the problem. To this day, the Megadeth name and logo is still one of the most recognized in rock. Every rock & roll fan is aware of who Megadeth is. Every metal kid claims to have been a fan of the band at one point or the other. But after trying, and trying some more to reinvent itself, the quartet has yet to make the necessary artistic leap needed to reach a super-mass audience (read two-million-plus) that they''ve always pined after. Megadeth have never been able to get out of the niche that they''ve built for themselves. And don''t doubt for a minute that Mustaine doesn''t know this. Well. For years, it fueled his addiction and made him petty and difficult. It also made for some great copy in the press. Indeed, one certainly cannot take anything away from Mustaine, especially if you re-listen to the songs that he co-wrote on Metallica''s first two records, but sadly, he''s always compared apples with oranges. Because at the end of the day, Metallica is a very different band. Not just a better band, but a superlative one at that, and something that Mustaine has finally come to grips with once and for all.

CAPITOL PUNISHMENT: THE MEGADETH YEARS is a greatest hits album by Megadeth, released in 2000, through Capitol Records. The album features the Dave Mustaine/David Ellefson/Jimmy DeGrasso/Al Pitrelli line-up on the new track "Kill the King". 

The title of the album is an allusion to the band''s persistent difficulties with their record label, Capitol Records. Megadeth ultimately left Capitol and signed with Sanctuary Records, but were contractually obliged to release one further album with Capitol, hence the greatest hits compilation. With the exception of material from the band''s debut album, KILLING IS MY BUSINESS... AND BUSINESS IS GOOD!, which was released on Combat Records rather than Capitol, the compilation contains songs from all Megadeth''s previously released albums at the time. In addition to the new track "Kill the King", Capitol insisted on the inclusion of "Dread and the Fugitive Mind", a track recorded for the upcoming THE WORLD NEEDS A HERO album. The band agreed simply to release themselves from their obligations to Capitol, but the enmity between band and label was  memorialized in the title of the album, intended to demonstrate that working with Capitol was a form of punishment. This is the only compilation album to feature "Crush ''Em", "Use the Man" and "Almost Honest" and are not on further compilations with the exception of the release of the box set WARCHEST in 2007.
